I'd like to get a GPS just to keep with me in the jeep. Anyone have experience with the E-Trex? If so, which model?
rusty_tlc said:My main problem with Garmins is the antenna, it is directional. You need to keep the GPS horizontal to maintain sat. lock. Magellin's antenna is helical which means you can stick it in your jacket pocket or on a windsheild mount and keep lock. My Legand was basicaly useless in my truck with it's steel cab, I use my Magellian with no problems. The Magellian Explorist similar to the eTrex line if you want to comparision shop.

The issue with the roof interfering: Nick, borrow a similar unit from someone and see if that's going to be an issue in the XJ.
